Unlike some of its rivals, the X-Class will only be available with a five-seat cab. While this might alienate a few buyers who'd like to trade rear seat space for loadbay length, the vast majority of pick-ups in the UK are sold in this form.
A couple of tall adults with have all the head room they need in the front seats. Another two adults will stay comfortable in the back on a long journey, too, with good head, leg and shoulder room, although the floor is slightly raised. Even so, it’s very similar in size to Navara in the back and slightly bigger than the five-seat Hilux.
Behind is a loadbay that as standard comes in open form but can be specified with everything from a flat, lockable cover to a raised box-configuration. It'll take 1066kg in 250d form and a slightly better 1087kg on manual 220d models, which is comparable to rivals such as the Amarok and Ranger. Like those rivals, it'll take a standard European pallet on board between its wheel arches with no complaints.
